One month after publicly saying that she is a lesbian, actress Raven-Symone was recently spotted spending time with her rumored girlfriend, model AzMarie Livingston.
According to a report from Us Weekly, the alleged couple was seen at rapper Ludacris’ Labor Day charity event in Atlanta on Monday. The twosome posed for a photo together at the event, part of the LudaDay Weekend Celebrity Pool Party, with the former “Cosby Show” child star smiling and giving a peace sign, and Livingston, a former “America’s Next Top Model: British Invasion” contestant, showing off a slight smirk.

The 27-year-old actress first confirmed her sexuality following the overturning of the Defense of Marriage Act by the Supreme Court in June, a law that allowed states to refuse same-sex marriages. “I can finally get married! Yay government” Symone wrote on Twitter in August.
Following her admission, the actress confirmed speculation that she is a lesbian to CNN two days later, saying she is happy the option of marriage is available to her. "I am very happy that gay marriage is opening up around the country and is being accepted. I was excited to hear today that more states legalized gay marriage," she said. "I, however, am not currently getting married, but it is great to know I can now, should I wish to."

Symone first addressed rumors regarding her sexuality in May 2012 after the National Enquirer published a story claiming the actress was planning to make her rumored romance with Livingston public. “My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I’m datings to know [sic],” said Symone on Twitter. “I’m not one for a public display of my life.” According to the report, Symone and Livingston were living together in a $11,000-a-month apartment in New York City.
